First female Director for Brotherhood of St Laurence
International development leader takes the helm.
Brotherhood of St Laurence have announced their new Executive Director Conny Lenneberg will be joining the NFP in January 2018.
The new Executive Director will succeed Tony Nicholson who steps down at the end of the year.
Lenneberg led World Vision International’s organisation and programs in the Middle East and Eastern Europe.
After conducting a rigorous search, the Board determined that Lenneberg had the leadership skills, knowledge and values to drive the next chapter of the Brotherhood’s work for an Australia free of poverty.
In taking up the role, Lenneberg is the first woman to lead the organisation which was founded by the Anglican priest, Father Gerard Tucker, in 1930.
The leader has 25 years’ experience in the development and social justice sector, from service delivery in the field to leading large teams and senior executive and board roles. Recently, she has been serving as the interim CEO of World Vision New Zealand. Prior roles include being a senior manager at Australian Volunteers International.
